    Has Anyone Made a Jellyroll Rug?

    Hi friends,
    A blog I subscribe to called Carried Away Quilting featured a darling rug made from a jelly roll and a roll of cotton batting.
    I found several places that sells the batting- it's 2.5 inch strips on a roll. Wondering if anyone has made one and how hard/easy was it to make.
    Thanks!
    Susie

    I've made 4 and have taught 2 classes so far on these rugs. They are Very easy to make. The directions in the pattern are easy to follow. Just be very careful to let your machine feed the fabric through - don't push or pull and keep the area behind your machine clear so the rug can lay flat as it goes.
    I cut up my scraps of batting to use in the rugs. Cut them just under 2 1/2". I had enough scraps to make all the rugs and a couple samples.
    I had some really ugly jelly rolls that I bought years ago - it made a great looking rug. It's one of my favorites.
    I also had a ugly panel that came with a kit I bought. I cut that up into strips. It looks really cool and is one of the favorites of the ones I take as samples to the classes.

    I'm waiting for a class on it. I do better in a class setting learning a new project. The shop here gives free classes for this type of project if you buy the pattern and supplies from the shop. Worth it to me. After that I can make more if I want on my own.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    I tried- it turned into another basket- I can not figure out how to keep the ends from folding up. i was so frustrated with it- I will stick with other rag quilts- that one just doesn’t work out for me. I’ve seen pictures of some that are great, I just cannot figure out the trick to going around the corners
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    That sounds like a real trip-hazard. lol (I can relate because I have tried crochet patterns that were supposed to be flat and turned into some interesting shapes.)

    jelly roll rug pictures

    Here are pictures of a couple of the jelly roll rugs I made.
    The white one was made with a panel I cut into strips and the other was made with a jelly roll.

    I think another thread not long ago was on here. Somebody posted a link on YouTube that showed how it's done.

    Sewgood...your rugs look awesome. This is on my list of things to try too. There is a gal in our sewing group who is going to give us a tutorial sometime soon.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Saw a demo at the Shipshewana quilt show. There is the jelly roll and then two rolls of batting, very thin, sewn down. There should be a tute on it. The rolls of batting were 12.xx$$. Really cute, trick is to easy the corners in and get it to lay flat.

    I just jumped off this site for about ten minutes and went to YouTube and there are many, many tutorials for jelly roll rugs. I even found some other interesting options for rug making out of fabric scraps. So, go and wander about YouTube and see what feeds you need to make a rug from jelly rolls or scraps.

    Your rug is pretty but that's not the one I saw. The one I saw is rows of strips and it's rectangular.

    they are very colorful, I have been toying with the idea mainly because I need small rugs for my small rooms and can't find anything I like on the market, thanks for sharing, they look great

    Sewgood, love your rugs. They look like the ones made from fabric covered clothesline as demonstrated by Joyce Drexler. Many years ago, I tried my hand at Braided Rugs and had a lot of trouble with turning corners or increasing.

    Very interesting about the strip rug. Here's what I found:

    Pattern for rug:

    https://www.etsy.com/listing/6074980...op_home_feat_2

    Source for batting strips:

    https://www.stitchesngiggles.com/lis...oll-2-12x25yds

    I bet if we did enough web searching we could find an online tutorial. I'm off to check it out. Here's one I found that doesn't require batting but you use a non slip backing for the back side. Cute idea.

    Thank you so much for the links. I just order 2 rolls of the batting for some purses I want to make!

    Here are the rectangle and oval ones to compare:

    https://www.checkernewsletter.com/th...rug-rectangle/

    These jelly roll rugs by R.J. Designs have been so popular that they have added a rectangular version for beginners. This version is created with straight strips and does not require any turning so even novices will be successful!

    I would ask my friendly neighborhood long armer if they have batting scraps they would like to get rid of! I seem to have bags of the stuff and I don't quilt much for others!
